For the past couple of months I have been crate digging for vinyl records at the flea market. I love music, I love the sound quality of a record and a needle, and I love the way music inspires. There is also something about physically going to a flea market and searching for your own personal treasures. These life experiences gave me the idea for this new art installation.
From a distance you see a bookshelf filled to the brim with books. I collaged the spines of the books with sheet music by Mozart and Beethoven. All the books vary in size, but they all look the same from a glance. Do you ever hear that infamous quote, “Don’t judge a book by its cover?”
Go up to the shelf and touch it. Pull out a book and see what is on the cover. Open the book and read what is inside. Maybe you’ll find your own personal treasures.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
